Falcons injury report: Several players limited in practice as Bears prep week begins

Only Calais Campbell and Cordarrelle Patterson missed Wednesday's practice, but seven players were limited. 

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Almost Falcons every player participated in Wednesday's practice as Atlanta begins preparations for the Chicago Bears game this Sunday, but several were limited, the team announced.

Only veterans Calais Campbell and Cordarrelle Patterson were absent with a typical rest day on the first practice day.

Quarterback Taylor Heinicke (ankle) was among seven players listed as limited on the team's participation report. Defensive lineman David Onyemata (ankle), outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter (neck) and offensive linemen Jake Matthews (knee), Drew Dalman (ankle), Chris Lindstrom (ankle) and Kaleb McGary (knee) were also listed as limited.

Matthews exited in the fourth quarter of a Week 16 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. He did not return, but head coach Arthur Smith said he was cleared to return. Lindstrom and Carter left the game and were evaluated for concussions but both returned to the game.

The offensive linemen have battled injuries for the last few weeks. McGary has missed Atlanta's last three games while Matthews, Dalman and Lindstrom returned to gameplay in Week 16 after all missing the previous contest. As did defensive lineman David Onyemata who was inactive for the previous two games before returning against the Colts.

We take a look at the players on the current 53-man roster for the 2023 Atlanta Falcons, sponsored by Veepio.
